We have a real bomb out of nowhere, as Jordan Schultz reported on Twitter that the NBA is getting ready to release a massive story accusing Suns owner Rober Sarver of racism, sexism, and sexual harassment in a series of incidents.

Sarver gets hit with severe accusations

Robert Sarver is pretty well known in NBA circles as the Suns' owner, with one of the worse reputations in the league. Known for being a rather cheap owner, often costing his team of assembling a better roster is going to face some pretty severe accusations now, as a report by Jordan Schultz is indicating that Sarver has done some far worse things than ruining his team's quality. Being accused of racism, sexism, or sexual harassment by itself is a huge problem, but all three together are catastrophic. If proven true, this will definitely be the end of Sarver in Phoenix.

The Suns and Sarver respond

It didn't take long for the Phoenix Suns and Robert Sarver himself to respond to the reports and deny everything that was reported, stating his disbelief with the accusations, as reported by Gerald Bourguet on Twitter.

Of course, the Phoenix Suns have stepped in and defended their owner, denying all the accusations. Sarver himself seems to be pretty struck and shocked with the report, as he tried to dismantle all of it more than a couple of times in this report. Is Sarver's response truthful or not will be more transparent and revealed in the following days.

What's next for Sarver and the Suns?

As if Sarver wasn't under enough heat for declining to extend and pay his center Deandre Ayton, this report came as salt on the wound. Everyone around the NBA world has already bashed the Suns' owner for being cheap with his young big man, and the fact he totally ruined Ayton's morale and potential future with the team. 

After the Suns lost their home-opener versus the Nuggets, insecurity started to rise around Phoenix's chances to repeat the success from last season, and this controversy around their owner definitely won't help their team focus and play basketball. What will happen next with Sarver and the severe accusations directed at him is up for debate, but things will be clearer over the next couple of days.
